ENCINITAS, Calif. - An investigation was under way Monday into the death of a 43-year-old woman who was apparently intoxicated when she was struck by a car in Encinitas.
The pedestrian was struck in the 2600 block of South Coast Highway 101 about 7:45 p.m. Sunday, according to San Diego County sheriff's Sgt. Anthony O'Boyle. Paramedics took her to Scripps La Jolla Hospital, where she died, he said in a statement.
She and another woman apparently ran out in front of a Toyota Corolla driven by a 24-year-old man, who remained at the scene, O'Boyle said, adding the other woman declined treatment.
